Yep same here, got a text week or so back saying may be bad signal on the Thursday due to upgrade, kin ell back to what it used to be, I can now watch BBC iPlayer with no stuttering, fast downloads.

Think I will stay with em even after the 1p text delivery rip off.



How do you use iPlayer using the mobile network and not wifi?

In terms of this thread, giffgaff is far better value, as you can get the 10 goody bag, which gives you unlimited data, unlimited texts and 250 minutes. Plus there is a 5 goody bag coming soon proving only unlimited data! So awesome

You can't use iplayer on 02, giffgaff, Tmobile, they fail to connect you, think it's only 3 and Voda that let you stream iplayer correctly, if at all.

It's all well and good going on about giffgaff but there are limitations.

This is exaactly why I went with 3 after many years with 02 and even more with Tmobile, started on Tmobile when it was Mercury 121.

EDIT: I pay 25 a month (12 Month Contract) and I get 2000 any network minutes, 5000 3 to 3 minutes, 5000 texts and all you can eat data, plus I can tether my PC to the phone without them complaining.

I use T Mobile for my phone contract but I never bother using iplayer. I use that on my 3UK dongle.

I don't think it can ever beat fix line broadband as the Ping times are still really high so it would be useless for online gaming but I regularly get over 5Meg on my mobile phone which is good enough for streaming.

Well no it won't beat fixed line but it's improving. Today with my high speed dongle I downloaded over 200mb worth of PC updates & other stuff & it all downloaded within less than ten mins & that's good for a wireless network with over 200mb.

This dongle if you want great speeds on 3G then get one!! It truly has been amazing!! I get an average of over 4,000kbps but have reached just over 11,000kbps but last night it went to 9,000 to 10,000kbps & it did not take long to download a 2 gig file. Absolutely fantastic & it's been consistent too although the slowest I have got was about 798kbps But even busy times seems not to be trouble now with this dongle. It is now on a promotion for 35 quid in 3UK stores was 69 quid.

Excuse the dust I bloody dusted before I took this shot too.

That is blistering for mobile broadband. Most I've had is around 5 or 6.

Yes and the modem runs hot when in use. EDIT: I had to re-install my Neo's firmware today via SEUS cos when charger was plugged in the screen became unresponsive. I started the download from SEUS @ 18.24 & the 167.2mb downloaded over the Three network by 18:30!! Very impressive!!
